Training at 2am... :I

Boy last night I had an inner struggle. My son woke up crying at 2am. Puppy usually gets us up around 3 so I decided he was going to go out to pee while I was already up. So I'm trying to call him to me out of the room and he's not budging. I can hear his little tail a thumping but the dog is going nowhere. I can hear my sons cries escalating so I just picked the dog up and carried him outside. Very lazy I know. Plus the dog hates being picked up so it wasn't particularly positive. Anyway, take care of my son and go to let the pup and Jiki (who always has to go outside if someone else is going) in. Jiki came in no problem but the pup was curled up and, yet again, ignoring my calls. So I'm sitting there battling my desire to go back to bed with my desire not to scare the puppy into disliking my appearance. Finally went and grabbed several treats and used them to lure him inside with lots of praise in the process. Looks like I'm going to have to work harder on my recall. Having multiple dogs makes me pretty lazy. Puppy usually goes wherever all the other dogs are going. Must work on it when it's not the middle of the night!

LOL, I think my boy regressed back to puppyhood. I managed to wake him up around 2 am last night once it had finally stopped raining for a few minutes, and going out with him to use the potty. I'm standing there waiting for him to finish, it's started drizzling again, he's poking around, I'm trying to keep my impatience in check. Then he decides to just stand there, unmoving, like it's a beautiful spring day, with a gentle breeze, and the birds are chirping. I, however had had enough, it isn't spring, it's sopping wet, the drizzle had turned into a gentle rain, and it was around 40 degrees out there, I finally went and poked him to get him out of his daydreaming state and herded him back into the house.

The things we do for our dogs lol.

Ha that's part of my problem. It's COLD. Opening the door to let them out is jarring. I'm trying to retain as much of my sleep clouded state as I can so going after him is not fun. Plus, I've been picking him up and it's put him off coming to me all together. I really need to stop that. It's just SOOO much easier when it's late and I'm tired and just want to go back to bed.
